Family crest


The Morkel crest is 280 years old, going back to stamvader Philip Morkel. In the old Dutch society, middle class families had crests, unlike the British tradition where it was exclusive to aristocracy. Crests were part of the Cape society from the beginning. An earlier manifestation would have been housemarks, and we have a Morkel housemark from 1535.
